Intense eclipse Season: October & November 2013

Are you feeling this intense Eclipse time?  You are not alone.
We are in between a Lunar Eclipse (Oct 18) and a Solar Eclipse (Nov 3) right now. Throughout history, eclipses have been considered to be very powerful phenomena. See below for more info and a special Eclipse astrological chart reading price!

During this potent time of the year, the nights gets longer and we start to turn inside and seek our inner light.


Eclipses occur when the Sun, Moon, and Earth come into a straight line. With a Solar Eclipse, the Moon casts a shadow upon the Sun as the Moon passes directly between the Earth and Sun. The Moon eventually becomes contained within the Sun’s disk and, with a Total Solar Eclipse, there’s a narrow rim of sunlight that is visible around the Moon during the totality of the eclipse.

An eclipse always means that some amount of change is due, or sometimes overdue. If one has neglected matters, then an eclipse may bring a sort of crisis in order to turn things around and bring things back into a healthier balance.   Or an eclipse may open new doors and present major life-changing opportunities.

When an eclipse aligns closely with one of your planets, the significance of the eclipse for you is intensified. The closer the eclipse aligns with your natal planet, the more important it is.

In the outside world and in our personal lives, an eclipse is a dynamic transit that often coincides with important developments. It contains a stimulating and excitable energy that is sometimes a bit destabilizing.  Activity often increases shortly following an eclipse (or even prior to the eclipse, in some cases). This is why it’s recommended to hold off on making major life altering changes or decisions around the time of an eclipse. The atmospheric energy needs a little time to settle out. That way your new plan, project, or strategy has a better chance of stabilizing and working out in your favor.

Everyone feels the stimulation of an eclipse to some degree. For some it is subtle, while for others it can be quite intense. It can be enlightening to simply observe the things going on around you at eclipse time. Sometimes a relatively small incident gives clues to issues that will take on more importance in the months to come.

Feel sexy and ALIVE in your body.
Feel an incredible sweetness you did not know you had.
Be deeply empowered and yet fully compassionate.
Break through any stagnation you might be feeling.
Create a profound and joyful shift in your way of seeing …
BENEFITS of this practice:
Learn to receive: graciously accept compliments, have more attractive energy.
Notice how men (or predominantly masculine identified people) rush to assist and admire you wherever you go, and women feel emotionally safe with you. 
Let your heart and spirit sing together when your sexuality is ignited … allowing the flow of shakti in your body and energy field to radiate.
These ancient but simple techniques of movement in community beckon to us from our distant past – from our feminine lineage of sacred temple dancing. In pre -christian times, humans accessed higher vibrations and created a portal to the dimensions of spirit by women dancing and sounding in a group in a sacred place. This raised their vibrations in unison. The men honored and assisted this process. Our bodies remember this! and we just need to be reminded, by bypassing the mind and diving into the movements with a new found awareness.

THIS IS FOR YOU IF…You want to Reclaim your Feminine Power!   Are you, or your friends curious about what Tantric Bellydance is?   How do you get that GLOW that some magical women around you have?  Come and find out on Friday!

Happy dancers from our September/October series!

~ Womb Temple

With delight she’s discovering a new ‘home’ in her body ~ her Womb Temple.

She’s reclaiming her sanctuary that was in ruins for so long. She is cleaning and clearing her sullied sacred space, breathing into it, meditating & chanting here.
She’s discovering the dance of the womb.
She’s tapping into amazing levels of creativity & joy.
She’s finding here a teacher & guide that is far superior to the one she’s known. Living from here feels most familiar ~ it feels like home.
She is loving the richness of this mystical, magical, juicy haven.
She’s deepening her trust in this font.

The more regularly she visits her shrine, the more saturated she is with her own brand of wisdom. There’s something magnetic about her today.

She is Holy ground.
